Note similarities between the One Ring and a Leica. The wearer, or bearer, of the object is filled with ecstacy, yet tortured by the great price paid for its possession. Clutching the precious tightly, even when sleeping, is a given. When actually used, the wearer acquires a mantle of invisibility, even on a sunny street. The red Eye of Sauron, or Leica meatball, can sometimes be seen reflected on the object, signifying its true owner. When heated to high temperatures (or at least held to light just so), runes appear with forbidden verse and serial numbers. Meanwhile, strangers and travelling companions who behold the object are filled with wonder, then covetousness and, finally, an overwhelming urge to grab the object for meeeeeeeee. Any attempt to hurl the Leica into the churning lava of Mount Doom, and destroy the ancient evil forever, is thwarted by the enfeebled wills of all but Sauron himself (and the Unconditional Replacement Warranty).
